It wns finally agreed that tiie original Gns Hounds, composed of the personnel of the fii'st half team, should piny Hubbard for the title. In a preliminary giime Thursday nlelit. stnrlin? at 7:50 o'clock, til? Frisco railroaders and .the Hijackers, who finished in n lie for second place honors the last half, will play oft (heir dispute.' . 'Hie hardware boys definitely exploded the hopes of the Hi-Jack- ers and Frisco to gain n tic with them for the second half title when they trimmed the Apes.,The Fristo beat, the Merchants iiv the second game. 1C to IS, the third gome was forfeited to the Gas Hounds by tlie Dixie Fliers and (he Hi-Jackers took Company M into camp in thu final game. 18 to H.

The score was tied when, the third quarter ended, 1'. all and the Frisco called upon itr reserve power to forge aluad in the final period.
